LEGO Technic is designed to allow builders to create more advanced models with moving parts, like those built with LEGO MINDSTORMS. The LEGO Technic Idea Book: Fantastic Contraptions offers hundreds of ideas for combining LEGO Technic propellers, motors, weights, magnets, and other parts to make creations that walk. The book is color throughout, with little to no text accompanying its diagrams. Expert builder Yoshihito Isogawa begins with basic four-legged walkers, including an ant, a spider, and a dog. He then goes on to show you how to do more complex things with LEGO Technic, like how to use propellers, wind, weights, and vibration to make creations move; utilize springs to make a rocket launcher and a tennis ball pitching machine; employ pumps, cylinders, and the air to make creations move; and more. The LEGO Technic Idea Books are for anyone who wants to create a moving masterpiece, as well as those who want to make original robots with MINDSTORMS. It can also be used to demonstrate how machines work and to experience the fun of mechanics.
